    A new report has surfaced suggesting that Larry Page, the CEO and co-founder of Google, may be suffering from some health issues. He was not at Google's most recent shareholder metting, and Google's Chairman Eric Schmidt, indicated it was due to a voice condition. What makes this even stranger is that Google also said Page would not be at the Google I/O developer conference next week, nor would he be attending the company’s second-quarter earnings call in July, until his voice recovers. Here's a quote with additional details,

    This seems eerily similar to what happened at Apple with Steve Jobs. Still, there is probably no reason to read more into it than is necessary. Perhaps he simply has a bad case of strep...

    Keep it respectful.

    Being a ceo of a large company comes with its fair of stress and its bound to take a toll on the human body. For as much as I would love the perks of being a ceo I dont think I would want the stress.

    Yeah, stress can eat you alive... it sucks because stress breeds more stress. Its a vicious cycle. Its not pleasant. And going.away on a vacation only makes it worse, cause type A's usually are very hands on and need to be there... where the action is.

    I definitely couldn't handle the stress and pressure. I'm sure I'd easily have panics attacks if I was a CEO for something like Apple or Google. I'm sure it's hard enough to be one for smaller companies even if it's your own business.
